Every Saturday between mid-May until mid-September, the 104 Street City Market in downtown Edmonton invites you with sights and sounds of summer. With a wonderful variety of vendors there’s something for everyone. The really nice thing is you may bring your dog, on leash, while you enjoy the day. I think that’s just fan-furry-tastic!
One of my favorite finds was at ‘The Frosty Pumpkin’ where Brandie and Heather had hand-made home decor. I fell for this Garden Tea Cup Bird Feeder, isn’t it cute? I’m using it as a dainty bird bath in my o’ so small condo garden. I think it adds a little class.
As Mr Boomdeeadda and I made our way through the fresh flowers and produce we came to meet a new friend. She happily introduced me to her new kitty, all black and white just like Sylvester. Of course I wanted one of my own and set out to find “The Balloon Girl”.
As it turns out, the lovely and effervescent ‘Daphne’ is a University student paying her way through school with her balloon twisting skill as “Twist For Tips”. She’s a triple threat: smart, cute and talented. Her summers are cram packed with birthday parties and events, but today she’s making me my very own ‘Black Cat’ (you should have guessed). With her magic balloons, a twist here, a turn there and voila! My little Black Cat is complete with its very own aqua ball of yarn. Thank’s Daphne!
Of course Petals and Blossum were very interested in my new friend. Although Petals was suspicious, I do believe that Blossum was saying “oh, hello! want to play”?
